MIUT® will not open registrations for 2021!

Very few cancellations in the 2020 edition after race cancellation due to Covid-19, reflects the confidence that the athletes have in the race.

MIUT® direction board and Clube Montanha do Funchal ran out of places available to offer for MIUT® 2021, due to the fact of only a few runners cancelled their registration in the 2020's edition.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the MIUT® Board had to cancel the event scheduled for 2020, giving the athletes the possibility to cancel their registration for the event, but also creating the opportunity to defer it for the 2021 edition. The reaction of the athletes was of total confidence in the race and in the organization, since practically all the athletes preferred to ensure their presence at the 2021 edition. 

The few existing available spots are directed race changes and to the athletes who were on the waiting list for the 2020's edition.

For those who still intend to take part at this iconic and world-famous event, there is still hope, because in October 2020, the race organization plans to open a waiting list for the 2021 edition, for possible cancellations may occur till the end of February 2021.

Thus, we have the confirmation of the participation of about 3000 athletes, of which 2300 are not residents of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, the archipelago where the event takes place, considered by many to be a tourist destination of choice, with a strong component of nature tourism, having been awarded five times in a row the prize for World’s Leading Island Destination (2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015).

Even though there’s a continuous daily growth of positive cases of Covid-19 worldwide, the situation in the Madeira Archipelago remains very well controlled, around 200 Covid-19 positive cases registered to date (21/09/2020), which leads the organization of the event to maintain a strong hope that it will be possible to hold the event in 2021.

In this way, the success of MIUT 2021 registrations is already confirmed, demonstrating that athletes continue to trust the excellence of the race and the organization, having chosen to ensure their participation in a race on the World Circuit of the Ultra-Trail® World Tour – UTWT 1500 level.
